Salisbury Food And Drink Festival
This week long festival in Salisbury celebrates food and drink. Held in September, there are special food deals around the city with the ‘Festival Feast’ – great meals out for only £10.
The week is jam packed with activities for all the family to enjoy together. The 2012 festival included a taste trail at River Bourne Community Farm, learning about the vegetable garden at Heale House, Nature of Art in Wessex Workshop Day, Adult and Children’s Cookery workshops with Waitrose, stories and activities at the Library, Love your planet pizzas- a workshop with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, the Dinghams Baking Competition, a sparkling wine tasting evening with Cambridge Wine Merchants and a wild food foraging walk with River Cottage’s John Wright.
The festival culminates in a special Sunday market. With over 70 stalls overflowing with tasty produce, the day is also full of music, street theatre, cookery demonstrations, family food activities, the family egg and spoon race and afternoon tea at the Guildhall.
The 2013 dates are yet to be confirmed but will probably be the second week of September.
